The concept of activity profile listings and plots, already applied successfully to the display of mutagenicity data, has been modified for application to antimutagenicity data. The activity profiles are bar graphs that have been organized in two general ways: for antimutagens that have been tested in combination with a given mutagen and for mutagens that(More)
BACKGROUND The mechanisms by which alcohol consumption causes cancer have not been established due to a lack of experimental studies. METHODS A chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) model that bore human fibrosarcoma (HT1080) was used to determine whether the administration of physiologically relevant doses of ethanol could stimulate tumor growth,(More)
We tested whether adenosine has differential effects on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression under normoxic and hypoxic conditions, and whether A(1) or A(2) receptors (A(1)R; A(2)R) mediate these effects. Myocardial vascular smooth muscle cells (MVSMCs) from dog coronary artery were exposed to hypoxia (1% O(2)) or normoxia (20% O(2)) in the(More)
Computer-generated listings of data from short-term tests for genetic and related effects (activity profile listings) were prepared for 195 compounds that included for each compound, the test system (identified by a three-letter code word), qualitative results and the lowest effective dose (LED) or highest ineffective dose (HID) tested. A corresponding bar(More)
The mechanisms of sodium-induced myocardial hypertrophy and vascular hypertrophy are poorly understood. We tested the hypothesis that a high sodium concentration can directly induce cellular hypertrophy. Neonatal rat myocardial myoblasts (MMbs) and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) were cultured in a 50:50 mixture of DMEM and M199 supplemented with 10%(More)
Some knowledge of the potential genetic activity of a complex environmental mixture may be gained from an assessment of the genetic activity of its component chemicals. The expanded Genetic Activity Profile (GAP) data base provides a computer-generated graphic representation of genetic bioassay data as a function of dose of the substance tested. In(More)
